Mach4 General Discussion / Could somebody just spell it out for me?
« on: August 18, 2019, 04:14:06 PM »
Guys, I am not a computer expert and I am really struggling with this,
I had a 32bit dell machine which worked fine with mach3 and my gecko g540, I say `worked` as the dear old thing(12y/o) is no more.
I decided it was time to make the move to 64bit, windows 10 & mach4, as support for 7/8 ends shortly and my machine is on`tinternet and I figured the learning needed, will see me through beyond retirement.
I did some reading up on the parellel port and plugins, smooth steppers and uc100s and I now wished I hadn`t bothered as there is so much confusing and conflicting info on this subject that my head is spinning.
So if some kind soul would just TELL me what I need, I`ll be able to get my router table up and running again.
Thanks in advance.

General Mach Discussion / Have I been had?

I bought, what was claimed to be a "100% Original ✔ Official ✔ License ✔ Trusted Seller" version of mach3 from fleabay but now fear that it isn`t as claimed - the `licenced to` box on the about page has some random squiggles in it.

General Mach Discussion / Raft of problems
« on: January 25, 2018, 10:53:00 AM »
Hi all, I`m trying to get my mill up and running and am struggling with lack of experience and knowledge, I`m have a few problems, some strange some not so, like the odd way it attempts to cut, multiple times around the shape a mm or so deep then a 8-10mm deep gouge looking like nothing in the toolpath. Also I`m having to reset the motor tuning every time I boot the system as mach3 seems to forget the settings, there`s another problem, I have had to set the steps per mm down to 200 making it painfully slow to jog but otherwise to movement of the cutter is scaled up too big for my table.
Thank you in advance for your time.

Mach4 General Discussion / DRO reads in Centimeters

My native units are set to milimeters but the DRO readout is in centimeters, Is there a way to change this as it is confusing?
